Former presidential candidate Dr. Kiiza Besigye is changing tactics.

After numerous failed attempts at conquering the presidency through his different campaigns over the years, Besigye appears to have now decided to use music to reach out to the masses.

We have learnt that Besigye today joined singer cum activist Bobi Wine in studio for a recording session.

According to the self-styled Ghetto President, we should expect a new duet. “When the Ghetto President and the People’s President are in Dream Studios Kamwokya, you know what to expect…,” he posted online.

Big Brother Naija: TBoss, Debie-Rise, Bassey and Bally up for possible eviction

Palpable tension seems to have returned to the Big Brother Naija house as this week’s nomination show returns previously nominated housemates, TBoss and Debie-Rise as two of the nominees up for possible eviction. They were joined by Bassey and Bally who were both exempted from eviction last week.

This week’s nomination show is predicated on Sunday’s Head of House task which saw the emergence of Efe as new Ultimate Head of House. Before the nomination proper commenced, Biggie instructed all the housemates to make a presentation to the ultimate HoH, and make a strong case for self on why they should not be evicted.

As earlier promised during eviction show, Biggie mandated Efe to make use of his privileged position to nominate four housemates that he will like to be evicted this Sunday. In this particular order, Efe nominated TBoss, Debie -Rise, Bassey and Bally, during a diary session with Biggie.

When asked by Biggie whether his choice of housemates was motivated by sentiment or strategy, Efe who appears to be on the spot, said, “I think it was both sentiment and strategy. This is because I prefer to have some of the housemates I am close with to get to the final while those I am not comfortable with should go.”

As the show progresses, the competition seems to get stiffer. Ebuka Uchendu, the show’s host has confirmed that one housemate will leave the house come next Sunday. Who will be the next housemate to leave the house come Sunday?

On Monday, popular producer and CEO of Mavin Records, Don Jazzy visited the housemates as a celebrity guest and he advised the housemates in the company of his new signees, the DNA Twins, including a studio engineer. The songwriter and producer got the housemates to build a makeshift studio where they all worked on the official theme of Big Brother Naija, See Gobbe

The seventh eviction show holds on Sunday, 26 March.

Ntale’s Rival Vinka In S.Africa For Video Shoot

Ntale’s Rival Vinka In S.Africa For Video Shoot

Hardly three months into the music industry, Irene Ntale’s nemesis Veronica Luggya, popularly known as Vinka is taking the music scene by storm.

Our Snoops intimate that the Swangz Avenue singer early this week flew to South Africa for a video shoot of one of her latest songs.

Much as the title for the song hasn’t been revealed yet, Snoops at Swangz intimate that she will be doing visuals of her latest track ‘I’m in the mood’, which is already doing rounds on airwaves.

This comes a few days after Vinka doing several gigs around schools in Uganda, which she put on hold until she returns.

On returning, Vinka is expected to resume her countrywide tour as she roots for support ahead of the 2017 Buzz Teenz Awards (BTA). We are told that she is also working on some music projects with dancehall star Vampino.

Linda Lisa Dumps Broke Club Silk Boss

Gorgeous city marketer Linda Lisa Mukasa has fallen out with her longtime lovely boss, friend and confidant Elvis Sekyanzi, who is currently financially troubled.

Sekyanzi, who has been Linda’s boss for several years at Club Silk, Liquid Silk although they enjoyed a BFF thing, is currently hanging out with Charlie Lubega, at his Industrial Area night spot known as Club Guvnor.

She is now the new marketer at Lubega’s night club, after falling out with Sekyanzi, who has more troubles than she can handle, yet she is a young girl with a budding career. Linda, who has a child with TV star Douglas Lwanga, made herself a reputation as an astute marketer at Club Silk for the years she was running what was then Kampala’s No.2 night spot, second to Club Guvnor.

However, Snoops reveal that her boss Sekyanzi failed to service his debts with the now defunct Crane bank, something that caused trouble for his financial empire, hence the closure of the night Club and its consequent sale to Vision Group CEO Robert Kabushenga.

Linda now replaces her friend Pherrie Kimbugwe, who is married to a Ugandan- American and spends most of her time in the US.
